  A New York Post cartoon that some have interpreted as comparing US President Barack Obama to a violent chimpanzee gunned down by police drew outrage Wednesday from civil rights leaders and elected officials who said it echoed racist stereotypes of blacks as monkeys.

  The cartoon in Wednesday's Post by Sean Delonas shows two police officers, one with a smoking gun, standing over the body of a bullet-riddled chimp. And the other says: "They'll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill."

  The cartoon refers to a chimpanzee named Travis who was killed Monday by police in Stamford, Conn., after it mauled a friend of its owner.

  Obama signed his administration's economic stimulus plan on Tuesday.

  Some critics called the cartoon racist and said it trivialized a tragedy in which a woman was disfigured and a chimpanzee killed. Others said the cartoon suggests that Obama should be assassinated. Many urged a boycott of the Post and the companies that advertise in it.

  "How could the Post let this cartoon pass as satire?" said Barbara Ciara, president of the National Association of Black Journalists. "To compare the nation's first African-American commander in chief to a dead chimpanzee is nothing short of racist drivel."

  The cartoon set off a furious response against the Post. Its phones rang all day with angry callers. Protesters picketed the tabloid's Manhattan offices, demanding an apology and chanting "shut the Post down."

  Col Allan, editor-in-chief of the Post, defended the work.

  "The cartoon is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut," Allan said in a statement. "It broadly mocks Washington's efforts to revive the economy."

  《纽约邮报》日前登载了1幅警察用枪击毙一只狞恶的黑猩猩的漫画,这幅被一些人以为是暗讽总统奥巴马的漫画于本周三招致民权首脑和中选官员的抗议,他们称这幅画与种族主义者毁谤黑人是山公一模一样。

  这幅登载在本周三《纽约邮报》上的漫画为西恩?德洛纳所作,漫画中,两名警察站在1只满身布满枪弹的黑猩猩眼前,此中一人正举着一支冒着烟的枪,另外一人则说:“看来他们不能不另找人来制订下一份经济刺激方案了。”

  这幅漫画借用了本周一产生在康涅狄格州斯坦福的黑猩猩伤人被击毙事务,1只名叫Travis的黑猩猩因打击主人的同伙而被警察击毙。

  偶合的是,尔后的一天,奥巴马就签订了经济刺激方案。

  一些评述人士以为这幅漫画带有种族歧视象征,并称其轻蔑这场令一名密斯毁容、1只黑猩猩丧命的惨剧;另有一些人以为这幅画是在暗示奥巴马应当被暗杀。这件事发生后,不少人号召抵制《纽约邮报》以及在该报上做广告的公司。

  全美黑人消息工作者协会(NationalAssociationofBlackJournalists)会长芭芭拉?西亚拉说:“《邮报》怎样能登如许的漫画来针砭时弊?将美国首位非洲裔总统比作1只死去的黑猩猩带有明明的种族主义颜色。”

  这幅漫画诱发了民众对《邮报》的猛烈抗议和训斥,不少人打来电话表达气忿。抗议者们汇集在该报的曼哈顿办事处,要求报纸报歉,并高喊“邮报关门”。

  《纽约邮报》主编科尔?阿兰为这幅漫画进行了辩护。

  他在一份声明中说:“这幅作品明显是在借用时势针砭时弊,即借康涅狄格州的黑猩猩伤人被击毙一事来嗤笑当局的振兴经济筹划。”
